Dear Geant4eurs, We are scattering protons off carbon, and as far as I can tell, quasi-elastic scatterings belong to inelastic ones in G4. Also, this seems to mean that the primary protons get killed in both cases. However, there are some questions arising here: 1. If you please look at the first attachment, you will see the energy distributions of the secondaries coming out from the inelastics. At the high end of the protons, there is a small but distinct peak. This peak is very compatible with what's expected from the *primary* protons which excited the nucleus and continued their way. Also, it's hard to think of an inelastic process that would produce this distribution. Do you think these might be the surviving primaries, reclassified? If yes, then is there some mechanism for fishing them out? 2. Independently of the answer to the previous question, what happens to projectile protons which cause a nuclear excitation and they continue on their way, leaving the nucleus to de-excite as it sees fit? The point here is that not all primaries die in the process of inelastics and quasi-elastics. Is this reflected in G4? Can we identify these surviving particles for what they are? 3. How can the secondaries from quasi-elastics be tagged accurately, i.e. not as coming from inelastics? 4. If you take a look at the second attachment, you will see the energies vs. exit angles of the secondary protons from inelastics. You will see that a very distinct and mysterious feature stands out. (What is it?) 5. If you compare this plot to the first one, you will see that the edge of this feature corresponds to a rising peak at high energies of protons. Exactly the same apply to the secondary neutrons as well (no plots attached). Now, these two rising peaks look compatible with expectations from quasi-elastic scatterings. Is there some cut-off applied to quasi-elastics which would explain this unexpected feature?
